Bout-of-Books 8.0 Progress

BoutOfBooks-880x400-03

I think I may have outdone myself this time as far as book choices go. 😉 Right now I have 11 books to chose from. I know that I won’t be reading all 11, but half the fun for me is not knowing exactly which book is coming next. I have a couple on my list that are review books that I have promised to read this week, but the rest are just for fun. (You can view my Goals Post Here to see which books I currently plan on reading.) My ‘no goal’ goal strategy during the last Bout-of-Books worked well, so that’s how I’m planning to attack my reading this time. I’ll still keep track of the pages and number of books I read, but this way I will be under absolutely no pressure – except for my promise to review every book as soon as it’s read. It should be interesting to see if the no-goal approach works as well for Bout-of-Books 8.0 as it did for Bout-of-Books 7.0. I’ll also be visiting and checking on as many progress pages as I can, so be prepared to be stalked! In a very friendly, non-creepy way, of course. Good luck everyone and whatever your goals are, don’t forget to have fun! 😉

  1. i really don’t see how you manage to read several books at once, i got too immersed in them for something like that.
    today was slow but we got a lot of storm so i didn’t want to red something too short because then i would need to write teh review before jumping on next book ^^ but i had some low days too ( hope i will read aLOT) tomorrow to make it up for it

  2. WOW!! You’ve been a reading machine!! Good for you!! 🙂 Although I do wish BOB would have started THIS Monday (once my oldest is back to school), I am happy to read when I can, even if it isn’t that much, and spend my last days of summer vacation having fun with my boys :).

    I’m brainstorming my blog change still…and once I have it figured out, I will be contacting you ;).

    Enjoy your final day!!!

    • Not reading quite as fast this time, but one of my books is 703 pages. It’s long, but it’s good. 😉 I’m just plugging away! Enjoy the rest of your summer. It’s been beautiful here this weekend. Happy reading!
